Keep Your Horse Happy
Those who own hoses know how wonderful these animals are
to have as a companion. They are smart, sensitive, and fun
to be around. These beautiful and majestic animals require
a lot of care and love. It is important to make sure your
horse is happy so you can have a pleasant and gentle companion.
The following are the top 10 ways to make your horde happy:
Properly feed your horse. Because it is in a horse's
nature to constantly graze, have set times of the day
to feed it. Horses like a routine so feed at the same
times of the day. A horse requires a lot of fiber so give
him fresh grass or hay. As well, give him grain, but not
too much as it can upset his gut. He should have access
to water at all times. Water keeps the food able to ferment
so it won't get solid and hard in its hind gut.
Give your horse plenty of exercise. You want this exercise
to be like play and not all work. Exercise keeps his muscle
and tendons strong, improves blood circulation, and helps
Groom your horse on a daily basis. Make sure you groom
all over so that his hair and skin are clean and shiny.
Let your horse out everyday to run free in a pasture.
It is a calming experience and lets the horse be a horse.
He will get exercise, fresh air, and stretch his legs.
Let him spend his time with other horses.
Your horses stable should be warm and clean, with a soft
bed. The barn should have good ventilation and he should
be in the barn with other horses. Clean the stable out
every day so there is no build up of his droppings. Let
cats live in the barn.
Give your horse lots of attention. Talk to him in a gentle
voice, stroke him, rub him, scratch him, and play with
him. Horses love affection.
Everyday, use a pick to clean out its horseshoes. The
shoes should also fit well and are comfortable. A horse
that is in distress or uncomfortable will be cranky, bite,
kick, and his ears will lay back flat.
A horse needs a certain time of the day to relax and
be by them selves. Give them a certain time each day to
be by themselves. Outdoors in a pasture is a great place
for a horse to play and relax.
Make sure you have a Vet for your horse. You have a responsibility
to ensure the horse will be taken care of medically. Horses
should never live in pain or with an illness. Care also
includes appropriate de worming, checking its teeth, and
keeping an eye out for such conditions as colic. As well,
you must keep his hooves trimmed.
Making your horse happy will not only benefit him, but it
will enhance your life and provide you with a loyal and loving
companion that is easy to handle.
